  • Best Price, Well packaged

    Big Red, 11/21/2020 This kit arrived in great shape - well packaged and no shipping damage.
    The model looks great although I have not started to build it yet.
    Garrett Wade had the best price for this model, out of all the internet sources I found. On top of that, it was on sale and had free shipping.
    I appreciate that this specific model has a companion book "Mahogany in Scale" (sold elsewhere) with detailed instructions on the build process, because it has been many years since I did a lot of modeling as a kid.
    The RC electronics (radio and motor) for this model can be purchased from Dumas Models.
  • Top quality product

    Charlene Niederkorn, 9/3/2020 I purchased the Chris craft runabout and I am very impressed with the quality. I purchased this for my brother as a gift. When I received it my husband loved it so much, he wanted to keep it so I’ve bought another for him and will be gifting it to him for his birthday next week. I can hardly wait to see it completed!
  • Great Kit: 1949 Chris Craft

    Ed Pearsall, 5/30/2020 Shipped promptly, all parts present and accounted for. I have completed the frame and will start gluing the bottom today. Everything fit as shown in the instructions. Instructions are very detailed and complete. I am looking forward to getting the mahogany mounted. I plan to order the motor and control kit, run her on the lake behind our house.

    Ed Hoyles, 1/5/2015 Great kit, but not for beginners. Take your time and read and understand the instruction before picking up a tool.
  • Great Kit!

    Federico, 3/22/2014 I got this Chris Craft kit from my sons for Christmas and I am loving it.
